7th Annual NES Marathon for Children's Miracle Network


Recommended Posts

Just a heads up to anyone obsessed with the original Nintendo Entertainment System.  Pat Contri and co-host Ian Furguson will be hosting the 7th Annual NES Marathon for Children's Miracle Network.

This is a non profit marathon where all money donated goes to the Children's Miracle Network which helps children in North America with health care needs, support and rehabilitation.


They start this 24 hour Marathon Saturday November 12 2016 at 2 PM Eastern and it runs for 24 hours into Sunday.


As usual Pat plays a few minutes of each game cartridge while honoring different goals that donators request.  Pat has upwards of 800 games so you never get to see more than a couple minutes for most games unless it is a request or a goal.


This is a verified nonprofit charity backed by Indigogo.  Go to the site for more information and a list of prizes.


I have been watching this thing every year since 2012 and I smile thinking of these guys up all night blowing into cartridges with their eyes being held open by toothpicks. :)
